The Role of Earth Observation Satellite Imagery in Monitoring the Impacts of COVID-19
The COVID-19 global pandemic has had wide-ranging effects on not only human life, but also on our planet as a whole. Some of these effects are clearly observable from orbit, giving us the opportunity to better understand and visualize the impact of humans on our world. Dr. Tanya Harrison, Director of Science Strategy for the federal arm of Planet Labs, discusses what the Planet constellations of satellites have been able to capture from orbit, and the subsequent research done by scientists on the ground on these effects of COVID-19.

Space Place Planetarium - a Gift from the Past
Space Place Planetarium Canada is a non-profit, multi-disciplinary group of professionals determined to bring a public planetarium back to Toronto. Key advisors and committee leaders from across North America, include many experienced in the design, planning and operating science centres and planetariums.

Toronto has not had a public planetarium since 1995, and the city is the largest without one. It is a critical missing piece of Toronto’s tourism and educational infrastructure. Our leadership team includes corporate management experience in aerospace and technology and large scale cross-sector projects, professional and amateur astronomers, a former Ontario Deputy Minister of Tourism, and a former Toronto Catholic District School Board Chair.

Technology Safeguards Agreement--Why Canada is losing out
A Technology Safeguards Agreement (TSA) provides a framework for working with space-related technologies from the United States.  The United Kingdom, New Zealand and Brazil have signed a TSA with the United States.  These countries are actively pursuing space for commercial, military and research applications, and have taken a leadership position in the new space race.  Canada does not have a TSA with the United States.  Without a TSA Canada is unable to import or use space-related components from the US.  Without American technology, Canada is extremely disadvantaged and will never even join the race.

This presentation will provide a background on TSAs, compare various TSAs, and discuss reasons why Canada must negotiate and sign a TSA.
